The Wild Woods Men's Soap/Palm-Free Soap
The Wild Woods Men's Soap/Palm-Free Soap
Pamper yourself with this handsome chunk of handmade soap featuring Olive Oil, Organic Coconut Oil, Avocado Oil, and rich Cocoa butter. We have added real Tussah silk for an out-of-this-world luxurious experience. This soap is completely PALM-FREE.
Reminiscent of a clear, cold morning in the woods, this soap is scented with a hearty and brisk Juniper Sage fragrance. The main notes of evergreen tree, Juniper and aromatic Sage in this outdoorsy (and slightly sporty) scent are rounded out with Bergamot, Geranium and Amber.
More about our premium oils and butters. . . we use real Extra-Virgin Organic Olive Oil in these bars (and most of our other soaps, too!). Cocoa Butter is a real powerhouse ingredient in soap - helps contribute to a nice hard bar of soap and doubles as a natural emollient for your skin. It is high in fatty acids and Cocoa Mass Polyphenols (CMP's), a type of antioxidant. CMP's are unsaponifiable, meaning they remain in the finished bar of soap (they are not used up during the saponification process). It also helps maintain a stable lather during soap use. When used at higher proportions, some can even smell the rich, buttery, cocoa-like scent of Cocoa Butter! Avocado Oil Is rich in Vitamins A, B, D and E as well as lecithin, potassium, beta carotene and amino acids. It is great for individuals with sensitive skin or formulations for mature skin. Mixed in the correct proportions here with pure Olive Oil and Organic Coconut Oil, they make a nice hard bar with great sheen and an amazing lather.
Each chunky, substantial bar of soap weighs a minimum of 4.7 oz (ranging up to 5.1 oz) and measures approximately 3.2” x 2.8” x .9” so it will last you a lot longer than the approximately 4 oz handmade bars commonly sold. The fun stacked-swirled design and bold deep cranberry-red and pine green make this soap a great conversation piece and an attractive addition to any kitchen or bath decor They make amazing stocking stuffers or gifts for men; or cut them in half to add to gift baskets or give with co-worker gifts.

Please note: Mica and Oxide colors were used to achieve the vivid colors you see in this design. During use, the bubbles might have some visible color to them. These soaps rinse beautifully clean from the skin with no color residue. They may, however, stain your light-colored washcloths. Use of a bath pouf is recommended. Please use caution placing the wet soaps on any surface that might be stained.
This soap is made using the time-honored Cold Process method. As a completely handmade item, there will naturally be some variations from batch to batch.
Packaging: Your handmade creation will arrive with a cardstock “cigar band” style label with the soap name and full ingredients listed. In keeping with a greener business model we work to avoid waste in packaging wherever possible and to use the fewest plastic products possible. Should you need a sturdier plastic over-wrap applied prior to shipment, please message us with your request. Additional charges will apply for this service on orders of more than 1-2 bars.
We recommend that you perform a patch test prior to using any new bath & body product. Our ingredients include (but are not limited to) natural botanicals, exfoliants (Ex: walnut hull, poppy seeds) , butters and oils, and essential and fragrance oils. It is possible for people to be sensitive to something as common as Palm oil and not be aware of it (especially if you have been using commercial soaps which are mostly detergents and surfectants), so please use all due caution.
Each bar of soap is lovingly made in small batches by hand with careful attention to detail and quality ingredients by Heart's Path Designs creator Lisa Jenkins.
